Forum Age Restriction Discussion 2


#1

Continuing the discussion from Forum Age Restriction? :0


The last topic was flagged for being off topic, and I would like to continue the discussion here. :D
Please don't get off topic, and let's try to stay respectful and not get out of control with this crisis.

Are we allowed to make a second version of a flagged topic, if it was flagged for only a few posts being off-topic? If not, I'll recycle this topic, but I don't think that's the case here.

I have one thing to say about this.

I'm pretty sure that's only a rule for the discourse forum, not ours.


#3

But, couldn't THT have the power to change it in some way?
What you said could be a possibility though! :D


#4

I'm pretty sure it's a legal thing, so no...


#5

Wait the guidelines here? Can you link it?


#6

I'm not sure what you mean by that...the Community Guidelines, or the Terms of Service?

#7

Where did you find that? The age restriction thing? What website.


#8

Click here to read the Terms of Service. It's in the second paragraph, last sentence. If you clicked on the original topic, I've posted a screenshot and highlighted the sentence! :D @MrHotdog64


#9

I think that would be ok. (To make this topic again)


#10

Okay! Also, a question: if one of my topics gets flagged, does that count as a flag towards me? I don't think I did anything wrong, so I'm a bit confused.


#11

I don't think it's official, the official one was made by Liza I believe.

This is her fourm not discourses, well the rules I mean, it technically I said discourses ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


#12

Do you know where the official one made by Liza is?


#13

It definitely applies here on this forum, and they have to keep it. But no one really cares about it. They could be sued, but it's highly unlikely.


#14

Yes, counts as a flag towards you.


#15

But I didn't do anything wrong! :0
Sorry, I'm distressed. Are you sure? None of my original posts got flagged.


#16

Do you think why the hopscotch team has not replied to this?


#17

Nope, just the people who got flagged.


#18

Yeah. They aren't legal peeps. They probably know just as much about COPPA as we do.


#19

Thank goodness! :sweat_smile:
So am I breaking the law by being on the forum if I'm not 13 yet..?
WILL THIS GO ON MY PERMANENT RECORD? :0
I'm dead serious.


#20

Does the law apply to people in other countries too
